How can I hide the light under a bushel?

I have a motherboard in my PC, with 3 extremely bright blue LED lights. I can't disable them, because they show whether or not there is a problem with the CPU, RAM, etc. Would putting something like Blutack
over them damage them?

As far as I can tell, it's inert and nonconductive, but I'm concerned about the amount of heat that the LED gives out. I don't want to physically remove them, because they do perform a useful function. I just want to cover them up and stop them lighting up the room at night while I'm trying to sleep (yes, they are that bright).
So, would Blutack do the job? Or is there something more suitable that I could use?
